SIMATIC Ident — for more economic production and logistics processes

1 Fiercer competition, stricter standards and legal regulations, The right identification technology depends on factors such as
shorter product life cycles, more individual customer require- sensing distance, lighting conditions, single or repeat mark-
ments and increasingly globalized value-adding chains: ings, as well as environmental effects such as temperature
to stay ahead in dynamic markets, companies must increase and pollution.
the efficiency of their value-adding chains - in production con-
trol, asset management, tracking & tracing as well as in supply Whether RFID, barcode, DMC or OCR: every technology has its
chain management. Through the use of innovative identifica- specific strengths. Character recognition is used for cases in
tion technology, companies gain an important advantage. which codes must also be readable by persons, such as expira-
tion dates.
We offer SIMATIC Ident, a unique portfolio for industrial iden-
tification which can provide the perfect solution for your 2D codes and RFID impress customers with their high level of
requirements while keeping you flexible for the future. data security and have proved reliable even under harsh in-
dustrial conditions.

The decisive criterion for an identification system:


Your individual application.

Identification, mobile data storage:


RFID
RFID is the ideal solution when there is no line of sight
between the reader and the marking, large volumes of data or
wide ranges are required, or the stored information has to be
changed. Here the product or object is fitted with a memory
chip that can be programmed and read using radio tech-
niques. With low-cost Smart Labels available for logistics,
rugged data memories for assembly lines as well as transpon-
ders with a wide range, RFID is perfectly suited to a variety of
different applications.

Our intelligent SIMATIC RF system family offers you transpar-


ency without gaps. Data is therefore available at any time
along the complete production and distribution chain - for
perfect control and optimization of material flow and logistics.

Verification, identification:
Code reading systems
When higher performance is required, 2D codes are recom-
mended as an alternative to barcodes, because they offer
greater memory capacity and a better read rate. They can be
applied inexpensively, e.g. together with shipping labels. They
also enable products to be marked directly (Direct Part Mark-
ing, DPM) using lasers, printing or dot-peening, which is ex-
tremely resistant to external influences. 2D codes can be read
with complete reliability even from a small viewing angle or
under difficult lighting conditions.
With SIMATIC code reading systems, we offer you the ideal so-
lution for reading and verifying 1D and 2D codes as well as for
text recognition (OCR) and object recognition (Pat-Genius) –
for the reliable tracing of production batches beyond the man-
ufacturing plant

Asset Management
Assets such as tools, plant parts, or containers are essential for production and logistics. Industrial identification ensures they are
used efficiently. The inventory can be acquired in real time and the status determined precisely. This means that the use of the
assets can be monitored perfectly at any time and optimized specifically for stock quantity, capacity and maintenance.

1 Tracking & Tracing


With industrial identification, each product leaves a digital trail that can be seamlessly traced and documented back to the origin
of its individual components. This permits full transparency of the entire product life cycle and therefore the best possible quality.

Supply Chain Management


Competitive production on an industrial scale requires global supply chains for individual parts and components. Industrial identi-
fication makes these supply chains transparent and predictable, and facilitate optimum planning. This avoids delivery bottlenecks
and downtimes, optimizes warehouse stocks and improves profit margins.

tasks
All of the SIMATIC RF200 readers are suitable for reliable read-
ing and writing tasks in the HF range of 13.56 MHz. The SIMATIC
RF200 IO-Link readers are available for simple several reading
tasks.
The readers are connected (via an RS422 interface) to the auto-
mation level (e.g. SIMATIC S7) by means of communication
modules over standard fieldbuses (e.g. PROFIBUS or
PROFINET).
User-friendly function blocks are available for the S7 program-
ming.
In the event of an error, the S7 application receives a detailed er-
ror message from the communication module via the function
block.
In addition, there are the SIMATIC RF240R, RF250R and RF260R
readers with an RS232 interface for connection to the PC or to
SIMATIC S7-1200.
The SIMATIC RF210R, RF220R, and RF260R readers are avail-
able as versions with an IO-Link interface.

■ Integration
A wide range of communication modules, function blocks, as
well as high-performance drivers and function libraries permits
easy and quick integration into the application.
And best of all: SIMATIC RF200 is part of Totally Integrated Au-
tomation and can be integrated easily and cost-effectively into
the SIMATIC world.
The IO-Link versions of the RF200 readers are integrated into the
control level with the help of standardized IO-Link masters.
For more details on the connection possibilities, see the section
"Communication Modules".

■ Overview
In the RS232 mode, the reader is suitable for integration into PC-
based control systems. Trigger and alarm signals can be con-
nected via digital inputs/outputs. Furthermore, bulk detection of
several hundred transponders is possible.
The antenna switch or the multiplexer enables several individual
antennas or portal solutions to be implemented with only one

• Primer application, cataphoresis with the associated drying
ovens
• Outer paint coating area with drying ovens
• Washing area with temperatures > +85°C

°C 32 Kbyte

Heat-resistant transponder, designed for skid identification in


paint shops (32 KB FRAM + 24 byte EEPROM), temperature
range up to +220 °C (cyclic).

■ Mode of operation
Cyclic operation of the transponder at temperatures > 100 °C
At ambient temperatures between +110 °C and +220 °C, care
must be taken to ensure that the internal temperature of the
SIMATIC RF380T does not exceed the critical threshold of
+110 °C. Each heating phase must therefore be followed by a
cooling phase. Some limit cycles are listed in the table below.

Heating up Cooling down


Temperature Time Temperature Time
200 °C 2h 25 °C >8h
200 °C 1h 25 °C >2h
190 °C 2h 25 °C >7h
190 °C 1h 25 °C > 1 h 45 min
180 °C 2h 25 °C > 5 h 30 min
180 °C 2h 25 °C > 4 h 30 min

A temperature calculation tool can compute the temperature


curve for the heat-proof SIMATIC RF380T transponder (see DVD
"RFID Systems Software & Documentation",
Order No. 6GT2080-2AA20).

SIMATIC RF600 readers
SIMATIC RF620R

■ Overview
The UHF RFID reader SIMATIC RF620R has been specially de-
signed for the requirements in production. The reader has an in-
tegral antenna and thus reduces the installation requirements
compared to devices with an external antenna connection. The
device is integrated into automation systems via the RS422 sys-
tem interface. Connection to PROFIBUS, PROFINET, and Indus-
trial Ethernet or directly to SIMATIC S7-300 is supported (via
communication modules SIMATIC RF170C/180C/182C or
ASM 456/475).
Special functions are available for the difficult environmental
conditions encountered in production environments, such as re-
flections and dead zones resulting from metal or superimposed
radio fields due to a high reader density. In this manner, process
stability is substantially increased by automatic adaptation of the
transmit power and intelligent filtering of the reading results.

3
The SIMATIC RF-DIAG software is available for fast and simple
commissioning and diagnostics.
The reader is easily configured by selecting pre-defined profiles
and using the well-known FB45 and FB55 function blocks. These
can also be found on the DVD "RFID Systems Software & Docu-
mentation" which can be ordered separately. Further information
on configuration, runtime response of the SIMATIC RF620R, and
integration with SIMATIC PLCs can be found in the associated
documentation.

RFID systems for the UHF frequency range


SIMATIC RF600 readers
SIMATIC RF640R
SIMATIC RF640R is a powerful UHF reader with integral antenna
■ Overview that is suitable for applications at single recording stations, in
conveyor systems or production plants. Due to its high maximum
transmission power of up to 2 W ERP (ETSI) / 4 W EIRP (FCC),
longer ranges can also be achieved. The high degree of protec-
tion of the overall system is a guarantee for problem-free use,
even under the most difficult environmental conditions. Instead
of the integral antenna, an external antenna of the RF600 series
(SIMATIC RF620A, RF640A, RF642A, RF660A) can be used. The
reader offers 2 digital inputs (24 V) and 2 digital outputs (typ.
24 V/0.5 A) that have protection circuits for industrial use.
The integrated processing logic of the reader enables numerous
functions to be executed in the device itself. For example, the
reader offers extensive, intelligent filter functions, a parameteriz-
able state machine for forwarding the data, the automatic control
of the digital outputs for signaling functions, and the extensive
configuration of response message frames. The advantage:
Thanks to its intelligence, this considerably reduces the cost for

3 additional software modules (RFID middleware). The reader is


configured by means of the easy-to-use SIMATIC RF-MANAGER
Basic software, which is provided on a free CD supplied with
each reader.
Data communication takes place via an XML protocol with
TCP/IP; the reader provides an Ethernet interface for this pur-
pose. The protocol is compatible with the SIMATIC RF670R.

RFID systems for the UHF frequency range


SIMATIC RF600 readers
SIMATIC RF670R

■ Overview
SIMATIC RF670R is a high-performance RFID reader with four
antenna connections which can be configured as required for in-
dividual read stations, detecting at conveyor systems, or as
gates. The high transmit power of up to 2 W ERP / 4 W EIRP (de-
pendent on antenna and cable) permits large ranges of up to
10 m in gate applications. The high degree of protection of the
overall system is a guarantee for problem-free use, even under
the most difficult environmental conditions.
Due to the monostatic antenna principle, as many as four inde-
pendent read stations can be implemented. All antennas of the
RF600 series are supported (SIMATIC RF620A, RF640A,
RF642A, RF660A). The reader offers 4 digital inputs (24 V) and
4 digital outputs (typ. 24 V/0.5 A) that have protection circuits for
industrial use.
The integrated processing logic of the reader enables numerous

3
functions of the higher-level software layers to be executed in the
device itself. For example, the reader offers extensive, intelligent
filter functions, a parameterizable state machine for forwarding
the data, the automatic control of the digital outputs for signaling
functions, and the extensive configuration of response message
frames. The advantage: Thanks to its intelligence, this consider-
ably reduces the cost for additional software modules (RFID
middleware). The reader is configured by means of the easy-to-
use SIMATIC RF-MANAGER Basic software, which is provided
on a free CD supplied with each reader.
Data communication for the RF670R is performed by means of
an XML protocol with TCP/IP; the reader provides an Ethernet in-
terface for this purpose.
8m Multitag Ethernet

■ Application
